For those of you who would like to fish league, please contact me
If there are any youngsters mad keen, I would be happy to provide a site, both inshore and offshore.

This years league is still open on all fronts (South, West and Offshore Leagues) due to covid shutting it down early.
Very few legs have been fished so points are still low. Scoring is on the grand prix system so the winner on the day gets 1000 points, so with luck one can easily catch up.

Should anyone aspire to WP or National colours, this is the route to go,

ROWING

Cape Coastal Rowing Club 25 August 2020

Joyous moments they were as rowing resumed across the country last month!

Cape Coastal Rowing Club has embraced legal outings with great care and consideration within the new constraints on clubs. Initially restricted to doubles and singles with a maximum of seven rowers per outing, came to an end on Saturday when three quads took to the water before the 2020 AGM.

This year’s AGM was, thankfully, held in the Crow’s Nest at the Club and via Zoom, highlighted the positive outcomes of the year, (yes, there were many despite Covid), and plans afoot for the year ahead.

A great big thank you to outgoing Commodore Pieter Coetzer who has steered his ship with precision and passion. To name but a few of his many accomplishments within raising greater awareness of development rowing and funding during his terms, Pieter initiated and developed a close relationship and training program with Lawhill Maritime Academy. He successfully cultivated superb relations and communications with False Bay Yacht club at every level, while motivating our foreign counterparts and touring clubs to enjoy reciprocity in Cape Town. All this, while keeping his members and family happy!

On Saturday Pieter handed over the reigns to long standing member and Treasurer, Sasha Planting who with her husband Greg, has kept our coffers and balances in fine check during two terms, thank you both. Sincere congratulations Sasha, as we celebrate with you the historic moment of your appointment as first lady Commodore of CCRC!

Well done and congratulations to Captain Dr Estelle Wiid, with your re-election and agreement to stay another term. We’d be lost without your tenacity, gusto, and mischievous humour, especially at first light!

Congratulations to newly elected committee member and long-standing rower and contributor to the club, Peter Goosen as Vice Captain. Pete takes over from Cath Greenwood who stays on as committee member after a huge contribution, particularly related to coaching and Lotto funding for the acquisition of Lawhill boats. A big thank you for contending with the challenges of official paperwork!

Another warm welcome to Ivan Heesom-Green, our new Treasurer who not only joined the club just a year ago, but who will now be juggling our books in between holding the reigns at SAMTRA and hardly missing a day of rowing.
Special thanks to Bryne Fisher-Geoffs for staying on, as you tirelessly continue to maintain our boats with the utmost care and passion, not to mention an unmatched set of technical skills we all desperately need to acquire. We salute you Bryne!

At the root of the excellent rowing skills found in this club, is our dedicated Coach Master Derrick Read, who with sheer tenacity practises the belief that ‘there’s only way to row and that’s the right way’. Thank you for staying on and continuing with growing our international tours!

Then to Kobus Huisamen who stays on as Projects Manager, we appreciate your input and fine tuning of a lot of essential work quietly done behind the scenes.

Lastly, thank you to Anna-Marie Smith who is delighted to be re-elected to continue with both Tours and Social Media as we stay connected and grow awareness of Cape Coastal Rowing Club across borders and virtual platforms.

We look forward to once again mingling with fellow FBYC members and supporting our home base restaurant when it re-opens.

See you on the water!

SAILING

A fantastic turn out of 11 boats made it to race in near perfect conditions on Saturday. There are no results as we only have 2 valid 2020/2021 ORC certificates.

If you are not wanting to validate your certificate I am unable to give you a club racing result.

We will be running with ORC – they have a great special running so no reason not to get a valid certificate.

Groggy
The term groggy means dazed and weakened or intoxicated, the way one might feel after he or she partakes in a goblet full of its root word grog, which is a mixture of rum and water. The term grog is a reference to a British admiral who ordered his sailors' rum to be diluted; he was nicknamed Old Grog because he wore a grogram cloak.
